- DOCTOR:
Michael.

- Yeah.

She's going to be fine.

But she took a lot of pills.

PIKI:
You are in

Bombay Hospital.

Where's Michael?

He's talking to the doctor.

You are lucky to be alive,

Mrs. Harwood.

I just can't bear life

without him.

I had a daughter once.

Anushka.

She fell into a pond while

trying to pick some plants.

I was looking away

for only one minute.

What if I could bring your son

back to you just one more time?

What if I could give you the

chance to say your final goodbye?

What are you talking about?

I was born in

a village in South India.

Surrounding our village

was a big forest.

And deep within

this forest

there was an abandoned temple.

It is said that the line between the

world of the dead and the living

spread them on the

steps of this temple,

lock yourself inside,

and when night comes,

he will come to you.

And you will be

able to talk to him

through the door

of the temple,

say your final goodbye.

I will leave

you two alone.

MICHAEL:

I was so scared I lost you.

I'm sorry.

(SOBBING)

I'm so, so sorry.

(WINSTON BARKING)

LUCY:

(LAUGHING)

Come on, boy.

(WOOD CREAKING)

If we do this,

you have to promise

me one thing.

When Oliver comes

to you at the temple,

you will be able
